David Lynch just announced on Twitter this morning, “Dear Twitter Friends… it is happening again.

He’s referring to the revival of his early 1990s cult classic show, Twin Peaks, on Showtime in 2016.

Showtime’s Youtube Channel adds this detail:

The groundbreaking television phenomenon, Golden Globe® and Peabody Award-winner TWIN PEAKS will return as a new limited series on SHOWTIME in 2016. Series creators and executive producers David Lynch and Mark Frost will write and produce all nine episodes of the limited series, and Lynch will direct every episode. Set in the present day, TWIN PEAKS will continue the lore of the original series, providing long-awaited answers and a satisfying conclusion for the series’ passionate fan base.

According to the fan site WelcometoTwinPeaks, David Lynch and Mark Frost are “trying to bring back as much of the original cast as possible, with Kyle MacLachlan definitely on board reprising his role as Special Agent Dale Cooper. Composer Angelo Badalamenti and Emmy Award-winning editor Duwayne Dunham will likely be involved as well.” You can rest assured that WelcometoTwinPeaks will keep you posted on new details as they come to light.

In the meantime, the original Twin Peaks series was re-issued on blu-ray this summer. And US-based viewers can watch the original series for free on Hulu.
